BFP deputy exec urges emergency responders to improvise, produce equipments out of indigenous materials
BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya (PIA) – A regional executive of the Bureau of Fire Protection(BFP) here has urged emergency responders in the province to make their own equipments made out of indigenous materials and cheaper items.
Dr. Roderick Ramirez, BFP assistant regional director for administration and operations said the use and production of rescue and medical equipment out of cheaper and available materials in the locality can be an alternative solution to address the insufficient resources of emergency responders.
“These equipment are cheaper and easy to produce. They are ideal resources for our barangay volunteers to use after their training,” he said.
Ramirez was one of the resource speakers in the on-going conduct of the First Fire Safety Summit in the province.
Ramirez said he started the trade of producing emergency equipment out of indigenous materials and cheaper items due to the immediate need for such during emergencies.
“To help is our common action but if we lack the necessary and proper equipment, we might be complicating the conditions of our patients and worse, it might kill them,” he said.
According to Ramirez, he has improvised an extrication device made out of a blue plastic drum which only required him to spend P1,200.00 to P1,400.00 for each compared to the P9,000.00 cost of each original equipment.
Out of the plastic drum, he was also able to produce splints and further made spine boards with fiber glass and plywood and foam covered CPR device.
“The localized CPR device only made me to spend P500-P600.00 while the spine board only required P800-1,200.00 compared to its original cost of P1,500-P2,000.00 each,” he said.
Ramirez said the production of equipment and devices made of cheaper and indigenous materials should be an imperative action among emergency responders especially in the barangay level since most of the emergencies are vehicular accidents.
Ramirez also expressed alarm over the expected occurrence of vehicular accidents during the Holy Week in most parts of the country.
“This is now the new epidemic – trauma out of such emergencies that needs to be addressed properly and immediately,” he said.
Ramirez also lamented the on-going exodus of the country’s nursing personnel to other countries as these are properly trained on various stages of emergency response.
He also urged schools to include in the curriculum of the National Students Training Program(NSTP) training on basic emergency responses to train students on life saving techniques.
“This is also useful knowledge aside from their doing of cleaning activities in various places,” Ramirez said.# Ben Moses Ebreo/PIA 2-Nueva Vizcaya
